When you think of pastels in the spring, it’s hard not to think of Easter and be reminded of your childhood hunting for eggs and eating chocolates, right?
Though pastels may seem a little “girlish,” especially in our twenties, I still think they’re the perfect colors for the spring because they’re so soft and feminine. I’m actually quite a fan of pastel tones and can’t stop wearing them!
If you’re like me and love pastels as well, keep reading to see how I style these soft colors for a more mature look that’s still feminine and sophisticated.
1. Don’t Be Afraid to Include White in Your Look
When thinking of pastels, it’s hard to not think about white as well, right? Personally, I always opt to include white in my pastel ensembles because it’s the epitome of a soft yet feminine look, don’t you think?
2. Opt for Lace, Silk, or Other Sensuous Fabrics
Though I love pastels so much, they can easily get lost, since the softer colors tend to blend together, especially when you add white in to the ensemble. This is why I pay special attention to fabrics in order to help each individual piece stand out.
When choosing fabrics, I tend to lean towards more feminine and sensuous fabrics, such as lace and silk, because the details are not only intricate, they also help set it apart from other more common materials.
3. Lean Towards Figure Hugging Pieces
And of course, ensembles that are more figure-hugging and help accentuate the body’s natural silhouette can also help to create a more feminine look. I tend to opt for skinny jeans that elongate the legs or dresses that either hug the body for a look that emphasizes the figure for a more mature look.
